Regular Guy Reads of the Week: April 3rd

It's been a thin week for good Regular Guy reads -- that's why I'm always looking for suggestions! Here's the best of what I've seen.

Avoiding Cardio Could Be Holding You Back: Cardio gets a bad rap, but here's a common-sense, scientifically backed perspective. A little technical, but a good read.

What Type of Cardio Is Best for Fat Loss? You might expect a lot of badmouthing of cardio from a site called Muscle and Strength, but this is a refreshing piece. It outlines the differences between steady-state and high-intensity cardio.

How to Stay Motivated When You're in a Running Rut: I like that this writer eschews "fitspo" and acknowledges that sometimes you feel like it simply sucks.

Should I See a Doctor About My Running Injury: We've all mucked through little dings and aches, but here's some good advice on when you need to take it more seriously. And no, there's no "listen to your body" advice in there.

What the Heck Is the Perfect Workout: I like some of this and disagree with some of this. The "Avoiding Cardio..." article above actually debunks some of it.

Four Ways to Build Mental Toughness: This is nuts-and-bolts stuff, not general encouragement. There have been a lot of studies showing that mental toughness is essential to maximizing athletic performance.

5-Minute High-Intensity Circuit Training for Runners: I do just about all of this stuff. But it's going to take more than 5 minutes.
